Justin Timberlake Is Back.

Justin Timberlake has shared a video for his new song “Filthy.” Watch it below. In the Mark Romanek-directed clip, Timberlake plays a Steve Jobs-type character who introduces the world to a provocative dancing robot. “Filthy” appears on his new album Man of the Woods, which arrives February 2. It features contributions from Timbaland, the Neptunes, Alicia Keys, and Chris Stapleton. His last record The 20/20 Experience arrived in 2013, along with its companion LP. Timberlake is set to perform at the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show on February in Minneapolis, 14 years after his performance with Janet Jackson.

The NEW Atari?!

Atari dominated the 1970s with games and consoles that delighted everyone for over a decade. In fact, some may say Atari even gave us Apple Computers and Steve Jobs, after he moved onto developing the most valuable company in the world with Woz post working on the Atari title Breakout in 1976 (Breakout was the basis and inspiration for certain aspects of the Apple II personal computer). However, Atari saw its decline towards the end of the 80s, with the likes of Nintendo and Sega taking the mantle. A little over 40 years later, Atari is back to reclaim past glory. Teased at CES back in June/July, the Ataribox home finally begins its pre-orders this Thursday.

The device will have a custom AMD processor and run Linux, giving the Ataribox the capability of playing both classic Atari games and mid-tier PC titles.  The Ataribox comes in two eye-catching finishes – a sleek glossed black with either a wood finish combination or an all glossed black look with red highlights. This device can sit on any table or drawers in the home and never look out of place. With quite an appealing aesthetic, the Ataribox will be sure to raise eyebrows and rekindle nostalgic memories once it’s released and in the homes of many come the Spring of 2018.

Illustration is a difficult skill to master on its own, as is finding one’s particular style, subject matter, and medium.  Belgian artist Bram Vanhaeren has a developed a fascinating combination of these facets.  His work started at great, and is only getting better.  His illustration style is unique, his subject matter started with sports heroes and inspirational athletes, then evolved to artists, actors, politicians and other inspirational figures.  Vanhaeren’s eye catching style even landed his work the cover of Advanced Photoshop Magazine, you can see more of his work here.

A Look At Steve Jobs’ Unfinished Feadship Superyacht.

Steve Jobs was designing his own Feadship superyacht at the time of his death. The vessel had been in development since 2009.  The design is said to be sleek and minimalist, naturally, with 40-foot-long glass walls and was to be built at Feadship’s facility in the Netherlands.  “Sometimes, word gets out about one of our yachts,” Feadship tells Super Yacht News regarding the report.  We often build for captains of industry, royalty and other leading individuals. Understandably, our clients value their privacy greatly and consequently we never discuss our owners’ identity. We choose not to comment.”  So what would Job’s yacht look like? Feadship’s Breathe concept, first unveiled at the Monaco Boat Show last year, is probably a good indication.  Drawing inspiration from biomimicry, which imitates forms found in nature, it is one of the most radical Feadship designs to date.

What Your Technology May Say About You.

Very recently my assistant’s cell phone bit the dust as suddenly as Steve Jobs, and we were searching frantically for a replacement.  Obviously the ability to call someone is no longer the determining factor when picking out cell phones or more importantly, smart phones.  The topic of smartphone operating systems can be as divisive as politics or the Mac vs. PC debate. (Just add snide comments about dropped calls.)  I delved into some research data to figure out what I could learn not just about the services themselves, but about Android vs. iPhone users.  Luckily for me, some friends at Column Five Media performed some of their infographic magic on the resulting data and the findings were pretty interesting. And people, please don’t forget that these are the statistics summed up by the info collected.  This doesn’t mean that because you own an iPhone your a woman.  Its just an average of all the data.  (If everything is blurry, click the pic to make it larger.)

Lil Wayne’s Public Service Announcement.

I was supposed to be in a studio session that didn’t pan out today, and as a result I landed in my boys apartment relaxing with some of my closest homeboys.  My homie David Ali peeped out an alert on twitter that brought about one of the most entertaining half hours of my year.  Lil Wayne posted up a 28 minute long video (filmed by his video man Derrik G) that initially started out with Steve Job’s as the topic, but quickly branched out to almost any and every topic that seemed to come to Wayne’s mind.  Thoroughly entertaining, and wildly funny at parts, it’s definitely worth watching the entire half hour.

Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011.

As I’m sure most readers already know.  Apple’s head honcho Steve Jobs has passed away.  Twitter was INSTANTLY a-twit with the news, and people all over the world are beginning to realize that the man responsible for a majority of the modernized technology they use, has passed.  Jobs has consistently managed to capture the world’s attention with his stage events. On Wednesday evening, the world took to the Web to express their condolences about the news of his death.  Facebook news feeds filled with links and anecdotes about the impact that technology — and more specifically, Apple’s technology — had on their lives. Messages on Twitter and the site’s list of trending topics quickly became dominated by phrases such as “RIP Steve Jobs,” “#ThankYouSteve” and “iHeaven.”  The flood of messages slowed Twitter to a crawl at times or produced error messages saying the site was over capacity.  On those sites, many people posted and quoted from Jobs’ heartfelt commencement address to Stanford University in 2005, in which he first provided details about his health problems. Many pointed out how promotions for Apple’s products on the company’s website were replaced with a black-and-white photo of Jobs.
